Andrew Manis talked about his book, A Fire You Can’t Put Out, in which he examines the life of civil rights activist Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, who fought against segregation and other forms of racism as a minister in Birmingham, Alabama. Mr. Manis talked about how Shuttlesworth battled Jim Crow restrictions in a campaign that pitted him against the segregationist police commissioner Eugene “Bull” Connor.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Macon, Georgia, from January 20-23 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
